When it comes to makeup brushes, I have three criteria: I like them to be soft, I like them to be well-shaped, and I like them to be pretty.
This is why my brush collection consists of Smashbox brushes with their bright, shiny red handles, and oodles of silver and gold handled MAC holiday brushes.
If you're looking to add to your own collection, I submit for your consideration these lovely brushes from the Kat Von D for Sephora collection.
These five eye brushes sport glossy black handles decorated with silver stenciled roses (Kat tattoo inspired, natch). I've generally found the Sephora brand brushes to be pretty good in terms of quality, so you'll be in good shape with these.
The Kat Eye Brush Set ($48) comes in a case with the same silver rose pattern, and holds these five brushes:
- angled eyeshadow brush
- eyeshadow blending brush
- angled brow brush
- flat eyeliner brush
- smudge brush (I have a soft spot for smudge brushes, I love them!)
